Hi I'm Carol Ann.

I'm a social studies teacher. I'm a feminist. I'm a graduate student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a graduate student studying Teacher Education, and I want to work with education policy some day. I am also a social studies teacher and I'm in my third year of teaching. I studied sociology in my undergraduate and I am incredibly interested in helping build up individuals and communities. I don't own a car. I ride my bike to commute. I garden. I love to cook.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe in the ability to become better, the importance of families, and building up the people around you. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in a loving Heavenly Father. I believe in a Holy Spirit that can help me understand and provide direction in my life. I believe in the power of strong women and strong men that can create change in our communities and world. I'm a Mormon because I find answers and direction to my questions through prayer and studying the scriptures. I'm a Mormon because I believe Heavenly Father loves us. I'm a Mormon because I feel so much peace as I read the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith not just on Sundays, but everyday. I live my faith personally through prayer and scripture study. But I also live my faith by serving the women in my neighborhood. I have the opportunity to lead the women in my neighborhood in our college town as we prepare and make decisions for our future lives. I am amazed by the talent, strength, and faith of the women I work with. I live my faith by participating in my community in gardening and on a city bike committee. My faith does not stop at the church door, but I live my faith everyday in my community. I am grateful I can combine my physical and spiritual aspects of my life. I do not have to hide my faith or suppress it to only certain aspects of my life. But I can have a prayer in my heart and be open to what I feel the Holy Spirit directs me to do or say. With this personal revelation, I can be peaceful in the decisions I make and serve the people around me.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Carol Ann.
I have come to know our Father in Heaven and continue to strengthen my relationship with Him and knowledge of Him through prayer, reading the scriptures, and living my faith. I am grateful for the promise as we make covenants or promises with Heavenly Father for how we live our lives, we are bound by loving ties. He loves us, and will continue to bless us and help us become better as we trust in Him. Show more Show less
